Winter Break Update - Dec 2014 share
The last day of school before Winter Break is Friday, December 19, and then it resumes Monday, January 5, 2015. This year, all of our centres will be closed on the first week of Winter Break, specifically December 22, 23 and 24, due to low enrolment for the past three years. In order to help with your planning over the holidays, we would like to let all our families know the plan for this year.
– All of our centres will be closed on December 22, 23 and 24.
– Spare Time Clubhouse (4251 Ontario Street) will be opened on December 29, 30 and 31, 2014 and January 2, 2015.
Families from any of the centres may attend at that location.
